Dear Doctor, due to unnecessary chronic anxiety, my weight is getting reduced. I'm already underweight. My bmi is 17.2.I have a feeling of vomiting and I can't sleep at night. Is it harmful for health? Can it cause heart problem such as anorexia? I'm male. I'm in a confusion. Will it lead to heart problem and diabetes? I'm male, age 29.

Yes anxiety can cause a lot of problems like reduces weight and decrease in appetite. But the good news is that it can be treated. At this age I don't see any reason as why you will get a heart disease. However anxiety can cause palpitation and patients think it is because of heart disease. This is not true. You can try relaxation exercises.
